    I just want SG drift to do a custom of a rpg OC. But I built IDW Megs and putting these together is a blast! Can't wait for Roddy, WB, and Arcee!

    Out-of-box build images of the Shattered Glass Drift model kit: https://twitter.com/flametoys_staff/status/1385140841778323457

    B9D64F0B-9767-4881-ADEF-40895E1FFADF.jpeg 680C5DE6-6833-4DEF-BF57-777550DCEB9C.jpeg 841FF603-AE83-486C-88AE-78FCCEBAE103.jpeg

    I usually like my transformers to transform, but I'm tempted to make an exception in this case. That red is gorgeous, and building an affordable model kit that's almost identical to the 3K figure is pretty appealing.

    He's begging for some added paint detail, but would be fun to add some, especially since it's been a while since I built a kit. This might be my first Flame Toys purchase!

    Is it possible that the red on the model kit looks even better than the maroon color used on the giant K3 figure..!?

    SG Drift appears to be bright-ish red, but the K3 toy gave him a darker almost maroon-sort of color.

    Just bit another bullet, threw down for a 3K SG Prime order from D4toys. The original release with standard colours didn’t do anything for me, but the SG paint job did lol

    I'm not getting it because of that. I'm getting it 'cause there hasn't been a good Windblade figure yet.

    He looks pretty freaking awesome painted up. I think I'm going to have to grab this guy. Will be my first non-transforming transformer!

    :rolleyes: 

    Wait! I must have missed this but are you judging the person for digging the design over the backstory of the product? The backstory is like the icing on a cake. If the initial wow factor don't get you (i.e. the design) then the back story is the coup de grace for the company to sell the product to the consumer.

    You like shaming the person for appreciating something that is easy on the eyes? Smacks of the Puritans of the yesteryears.:drunk

    good question, im guessing they will! If anything they should just change the wings to the black/purple scheme and keep Leo as is, the contrast in colors would look good. I really want the Dark Star Saber, but hes even more pricey on the resale market now.....

    I mean, themselves, right? Transformers name themselves, right?

    Unless you're Goldbug.
